Peach & nectarine rootstocks


Although it grows most strongly among the peach rootstocks, it is the most important rootstock in the Pannonian region. Its main advantages are its resistance to chlorosis (up to 12% active lime) and its good adaptation to dry soils. It yields faster than the seedling with the same fruit quality. They are also suitable for replanting peach seedlings and have excellent compatibility with peach and nectarine varieties.


Peach varieties on this plum rootstock are especially recommended for moist soils or in the home garden, where a lot of water is used. On light, dry soils, peachy rootstocks such as Montclar® produce the larger fruits.

Another advantage of Saint Julien A is the intensive rooting, which leads to fewer tree losses in the planting year than with peach seedlings with their small fine-root mass.

ADESOTO® 101 (Puebla de Soto)

is a clone selection of 'Pollizo di Murcia' (Prunus insititia) from the research centre Aula Dei, Zaragoza (Spain). Due to its growth characteristics, it is particularly suitable for peaches and nectarines, but also for apricots and plums and shows its strengths especially on dry soils. Adesoto grows medium to strong, 10-15% stronger than St. Julien A, tolerates dryness better and is nevertheless well suited for heavy, damp soils. It is very lime compatible and stimulates fruit size, early ripening and colouring. Adesoto makes very healthy trees, but suckers like St. Julien A.


Peach seedlings bring trees of great growth, they do not like moist soils and are prone to lime chlorosis. They should be used on healthy, well-drained and non-calcareous soils (maximum 7% active lime). Sensitivity to winter frosts (damage to the root crown), Agrobacterium tumefaciens and viral diseases. One of the most robust peach seedlings, which also produces one of the best fruit qualities, is Montclar.


This seedling brings medium growth and high fertility. It has a high resistance to Agrobacterium tumefaciens and nematodes. Due to its beautiful purple leaves it is also a popular ornamental plant in gardens. Because of its high fruit quality, Rubira is also more interesting for intensive planting systems than most plum rootstocks.


is a new vineyard peach seedling from the Czech Republic, which is particularly lime compatible and grows slightly weaker than Rubira. BSB 1 gives the top varieties particularly dark green leaves and causes an early termination of the main growth period in autumn. Both contribute significantly to tree health and very good yields with good fruit qualities at the same time.
